Private Practice

Learning to drive with Parents.


Parents or partners who are able to provide the opportunity for private practice are a massive help, both to us as instructors, and for those learning to drive.

The closer that you can mirror what we would do as professional instructors the more likely that success will be achieved.

First things first

Before going out with a learner driver, you must make sure that you meet the minimum licence requirements. You are over the age of 21 and have held a full driving licence (for the type of vehicle that you are using) for a minimum of three years.

You must also remember that you are not just a passenger, but a supervisor with a legal responsibility to your driver and other road users.

Route Planning

Route planning is VITAL in the early stages of learning and if these are poorly planned then it will lead to the learner making mistakes and becoming frustrated.
This often leads to arguments with the person you are teaching and possibly other drivers.

Inappropriate routes will often lead to lack of motivation and will cause learning to be slow.

One step at a time

If you find that your learner is stalling quite a lot when emerging from junctions or in traffic, the likely cause is insufficient practice in quieter areas with less pressure. Busy traffic is best avoided, such as school times and rush hour until confidence is gained.

You may thing that its good motivation to cover as much as possible in the early stages, but this will lead to severe problems later in their training.

Make sure the basic skills and foundations are in place and success will follow. Check with your driving instructor that your planned route will be suitable.

Talking sense

The choice of words will have a big impact on the way your learner responds. Try to be precise with your instructions, such as slow down - tell them how much to slow down and what speed you are looking for..... 20mph for example. Too close to the car in front - tell them to keep 3 car lengths so they have something to measure.

You must bear in mind that actions that you take for granted can be quite diffilcult for a learner to understand, and if you become short tempered and snappy, this will make them feel bad and de-motivated.

When mistakes have been made, instead of telling them what they did wrong, tell them what they need to do next time to get it right.
When success is achieved tell them how good they were and this will help with confidence and quicker learning.

Too fast

When people are learning to drive they generally try to do everything too fast, I am not talking about general speeding but allowing time to get things correct. Emerging at junctions are a good example, certainly to begin with the approach speed has got to be no more than an old persons walking pace. It is much better to do it slow and succeed than to rush and make mistakes. As confidence and knowledge improves then a progression to a more suitable speed can be introduced.

As a supervising driver you must be familiar with the basic mirror, signal, manoeuvre process including position, speed and gear.
This process is fundamental to driving, and if not followed could cause more harm than good.

As instructors we can spend more time sorting out what mum or dad has done and this can lead to extra time and money....hence the reason for this guide.

Finally, you have to accept that your learner will not respond as quickly as you might think to some situations and you will need patience in abundance.

My 1st Lesson Experience...


""I started driving lessons in South Africa about 10 years ago, but only had a few, never having been behind the wheel since until.......

Fast forward to 2013 and now having a growing family, I knew that having the ability to drive is an essential part of our lives.

I was extremely nervous during the days leading up to my first driving lesson, but upon meeting my driving instructor Mike, I knew that I was in safe hands. I was still very anxious and lacking in self-confidence, but he helped me overcome my fear of traffic on the open roads, with constant encouragement, brilliant teaching techniques, patience....and made me feel relaxed."


Tammy Mahoney, Gloucester

Mike is so easy to get along with and I really enjoyed my lessons...


"Mike Williams was my instructor, and a good one he was! I started with Mike when he was with a national driving school, and stuck with him when he left, and staying with Mike was a very good idea. He would tell you instructions, how we would understand. If I did something wrong he would tell me and make me do it untill I did it perfect. That helped me alot, he wouldnt let me give up on anything I was stuck on! It was never awkward when I was taking my lessons, we would always have a chat and a laugh! Mike is so easy to get along with and I really enjoyed my lessons. He would always encourage me which was a great help, kind of miss my lessons now!"

Libby Cookson, Gloucester

His teaching methods were brilliant!


"I had my driving lessons with Mike Williams, as he was recommended to me for which I was glad. I would most definitely highly recommend him as a Driving Instructor.

He is friendly, so easy to talk to and teaches you so well that you learn faster but properly, saving you money. His teaching methods were brilliant! I learnt quickly and could afford to do so as his prices are so great!

It wasn't long before I was taking my Test feeling really confident, and passed 1st time, with only 4 minors.

To sum up...great prices, nice car to drive and an amazing driving instructor. I'm so glad I went with Mike and wouldn't of thought twice about going with someone else."


Rose Powell, Gloucester

Mike explained everything in a way that made sense...


"For many years I had lessons on and of but never continued for one reason or another, but this year decided I just had to do it! I started lessons with Mike who explained things in a way I understood, was easy going and made me feel like I was actually getting somewhere with my lessons. It's easy to come away feeling confused and forgetting things when they aren't explained properly, and Mike explained everything in a way that made sense.

When you enjoy your lessons it is easier to continue and succeed! As a result I've now passed and only had Mike to thank for that!.....he is now teaching my daughter who also feels relaxed with Mike and is quite happy in her lessons. BIG THANKYOU! It really has been a pleasure and I don't have to rely on the buses anymore!!"
